The findings also reveal that although interviewed experts have similar views of immediate-release and extended-release pramipexole (Boehringer Ingelheim's Mirapex/Mirapexin/Sifrol/BI-Sifrol, generics; Mirapex ER/Mirapexin ER, Sifrol Retard) and immediate-release and controlled-release ropinirole (GlaxoSmithKline's Requip, generics; GlaxoSmithKline/SkyePharma's Requip XL/LP/RP/Modutab/Prolib), a higher percentage of surveyedneurologists chose pramipexole (26 percent) over ropinirole (18 percent) as the most effective agent for the treatment of advanced Parkinson's disease.
